5 Things Every man must know for self defense

Self-Defense Classes Exton, PA

  • Know the difference between a hard target and a soft target. Make yourself a hard target
    • People that prey on other people are experts at threat mitigation. They will make decisions that keep them upright, profitable, and out of jail. The harder you are to attack or prey upon the safer you will generally be.
       
  • Understand Situational Awareness
    • Pay. Attention. Things are happening all around you, never let yourself get surprised. Practice having broader attentiveness when in public.
       
  • Precursors for Attack
    • Our body language betrays our thoughts. Knowing that an attack is coming keeps you from getting caught off guard. Eye contact, lack of eye contact, nervousness, non-contextually appropriate smiling, verbal contact and repeated verbal contact can all be indicators of pending attack
       
  • The law and your ethics
    • You need to know two things above and beyond all else. How far will you go and how far can you go. You need to understand the difference between self-defense and assault or murder. You also need to know what and how far you are willing to go.
       
  • Learning self-defense is a process not a project.
    • Much like cleaning your garage or basement, spending a day learning self-defense and then letting it go isn’t going to do much for you. Instead a routine training, just like routine cleanliness will provide so much more.

This course teaches you...

How to strike - Throwing a punch seems like a simple thing, but it's not.  Punch the wrong way and you'll just make your assailant angry and possibly break your hand. We'll show you how you can use your entire body, the right way, so that you can deliver effective hits with your hands and feet. 

How to use your legs - This is a critical concept.  Whether striking or grappling most of our power is generated from the legs and hips.  Most people don't really know how to use them at all.  Once you learn, you can use this to your advantage.

How to break grips - It's going down and someone's put their hands on you.  If you don't know how to break the grip, they will be able to control you.  You'll be taught how to break grips with technique, not strength so that you can escape or fight back if needed.

How to use your hips on the ground - We spend most of our time sitting down or walking on two feet.  But, not much time on the ground and especially not much time on our backs.   When people hit the ground, they seem like a fish out of water....because, they don't know how to use their hips.  We'll teach you how to use your hips and escape to get back to your feet or fight from the ground if needed. 

How to clinch - If they grab you and you don't know how to escape, they will control you.  But, if you understand the clinch you will be able to both neutralize their strikes and control their movements.  You might not be able to run or want to go toe-to-toe with an assailant.  Learn the clinch so that you can control them, protect yourself and possibly others. 

How to make space and defend your zone - Personal space is everything when it comes to self defense.  You'll learn how stand off from an assailant, maintain proper angles for both escape and attack, and prevent an attack from happening at all.
